LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

 

Intro – Although our text may not have any profound theological statements in it, we can learn something from how Joseph and Mary responded to the Lord.  They are a good example for us to follow.

 

 

 

I. Joseph had learned obedience.  Deut.28:2

 

A. He was going to break off his engagement until told not to. Lk.1:38, Mt.1:19-20

 

B. He left his house as the angel commanded. Mt.2:13

 

C. He obeyed the Lord to leave Egypt.  (21)

 

D. He showed great patience. They remained in Egypt 2-3 years.  James 5:7

 

 

 

II. Joseph did not have the full picture.

 

A. He obeyed without having all the details. Jer.29:11, Ps.40:5

 

B. God’s will was accomplished through Joseph’s actions. Matt.1:22-23, Matt.2:17-18, Mt.2:23

 

C. God directed his path as he lived in obedience. Mt.6:33, Prov.3:5-6, Ps.119:133

 

 

 

III. Joseph was a part of a bigger picture.

 

A. He did not get further instruction until he obeyed the first command. (22)

 

B. Christ had to grow up in Nazareth. (23)

 

C. To be called a Nazarene was a reproach. Jn.1:46, Jn.19:19, Is.53:3. Ps.22:6-7, Is.49:7

 

D. We should see our lives as a part of the bigger picture.

 

 

 

Con. – Let us be like Joseph and Mary. When the Lord leads us let us obey and trust Him to carry out His will.
